Just a warning about the recipes that use Betty Crocker "gluten-free" mixes...I'd be wary of using them. I know many have eaten the mixes without any problems, but I get terribly sick, glutened, from them and I know others who have the same experience. I'm always skeptical of mainstream companies that try to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon.


Celiac diagnosed October-November 2010 (blood test negative, biopsy inconclusive after gluten-free for 6 weeks, miraculous diet results).

October 2010: Gluten free.

November 2010: No HFCS or artificial sweeteners.

March 2011: Gradually fading out soy.

Obviously if you've gotten sick from them, it's important for you to avoid them. I think it's impossible for any company to come up with a gluten-free mix or product that doesn't have an ingredient or two in it that someone will react to.

I am very happy that a mainstream company like General Mills has jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon as it means I can find products in regular grocery stores and not pay an arm and a leg for them. Small town, USA, just doesn't have a wide range of shopping options.

How much does this new cookbook cost? I think that will be a determining factor if I will buy it...as if I need yet another gluten-free cookbook (and I hate to admit that I do have some on my wish list at Amazon). tongue.gif

I paid $10 for mine.

Not a bad price! I'll have to look for it and hopefully have a chance to glance through it before buying, if I figure it's worth it.

I can not find this. Granted I only looked at one store. Is it a book? Or a magazine? If a magazine, is it the small one like the size of Prevention or Reader's Digest? Or is it a full sized one? Does it use the mixes? Thanks!

It's up with the magazines @ the checkout. It's full size. It does use the gluten free bisquick mix.

Thanks! Not sure it would work for me because I can't have eggs. I have the Bisquick but haven't tried it yet with the egg replacer.

I think the problem here is that none of the stores seem to have stocked most of their magazines for whatever reason. I normally buy the new weekly ones on Friday although some of the stores here do not stock theirs until Monday. I did get Life and Style but see no other new ones out. My mom subscribes to People and she said she did not get a new one at all this week.

I will try to go to the store again tomorrow. The new magazines should be out. Maybe I'll find it then.
